I was talking to someone with knowledge in this area, and he says "It would take a lot of time. You can do it easily the other way, but going to the desktop down could be hard, even worse if it's VB6.

There is a lot of desktop functionality that is not available on the Pocket PC without doing it in C/C++."

Perhaps instead of porting and you could have it rewritten using VB .Net and Visual Studio?

If you don't find anyone I could have a look at it for you.

Don't do much in VB, but can read it, but my day job is developing PDA/Smartphone apps.
